The law enforcement in the UK on Monday announced they will not take any action against Prince Andrew after a review prompted by a Jeffrey Epstein accuser who claims that he sexually assaulted her.

Virginia Giuffre claims she was trafficked by Epstein to have sex with Mr. Andrew in London in 2001, when she was age 17 and a minor under U.S. law. She is suing the prince in a U.S. court, media reported.

The London Metropolitan Police in August began a review of allegations connected to late convicted sex offender Epstein. During that time, Police chief Cressida Dick said that “no one is above the law.”

Meanwhile, the force said in a statement late Sunday that its “review has concluded and we are taking no further action.”

It also said it would take no action over allegations, first reported by Channel 4 News, that Epstein’s alleged accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, trafficked, groomed and abused women and girls in the UK, media reported.

Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, stepped down from public royal life following a TV interview in which he failed to show remorse over his friendship with Epstein, and little empathy with the sex offender’s alleged victims.

Meanwhile, Andrew is denying the allegations. He told the BBC in a 2019 interview that he never had sex with Giuffre, saying, “It didn’t happen.”

Ms. Maxwell, a British socialite, is in a U.S. jail awaiting trial on charges that she recruited teenage girls for Epstein to abuse.
